Clark's Oyster Bar - Austin 1200 W 6th St, Austin Seafood • $$$
1200 W 6th St, Austin

“Went to Clark’s Oyster Bar for lunch and had a wonderful anniversary celebration. The service was really attentive and friendly, with little details like a happy anniversary postcard on the table when we arrived. Sat outside, set back from the road, under a tree and their lovely yellow awnings, it was great to be outside. Cocktails were beautifully crafted, with strong flavours and a good amount of alcohol, and food arrived timely to the table. We had Oysters to start, which looked beautifully presented on a large metal dish of crushed ice with shaved horseradish and condiments, as well as the most delicious starter in their Tuna Carpaccio. This is an amazingly crafted dish, how they get their tuna to such a thin yet beautifully firm and flavoursome presentation shows real craft, complimented by all the olives, capers & sunflower sprouts, it’s a star dish. We had the lobster roll, a staple dish which could easily be shortcut, but every detail has gone in to elevate this dish too. The brioche roll was caramelised perfectly, huge perfect lettuce leaves cradled a very generous amount of delicate lobster, and a huge bowl of rosemary shoestring fries and a fresh ‘slaw to side, it just looked amazing and tasted so too. Finished off with a delicious key lime pie, and a torched Swiss meringue on the side, this was one of the best of many meals we had on our holiday to the USA. Highly recommend and would certainly go back if we visit Austin again and try their evening sitting, which I imagine with the fairy lights in the tree’s, would be just as magical. Thank You.”

“Been coming here regularly for years. Food is as good as ever, but the staff and ambiance has taking a big downgrade lately. I’ve had nothing but downright grumpy, buzzkill bar staff my last few visits. Heard this from other regulars too and the recent comments seem to support this observation. Regarding the ambiance, they have turned the music up to an 11 and the playlist selection and volume make it hard to hear your own table.The tables already have QR codes so save everyone the trouble of interacting with downer staff and just let folks order from their table. And maybe turn the music down a tad. Even with these downsides, it’s still one of the best happy hour deals in town.”

“Post 2024 April 8th eclipse visit, got in line with my wife at 11:45. Had multiple visits from the employees stating that we were in the "probably not going to get food" part of the line; my wife convinced me to stay the course. Got up to the ramp and had another disclaimer that "all the guarantees were inside the door", stayed the course. Got inside and began to count people past the "guarantees", +1, +2, +3.... There's still a chance... Finally, there were about 6 people in front us, we got the, "there's just brisket, ribs and turkey left". I'm thinking to myself, what were people ordering? That's the best stuff! Got up there, ordered some brisket, ribs and got the last of the turkey! Never loved BBQ more in my life, I mean my wife. My wife.Turkey was alright, ribs were good.Brisket can't be beat!Little over two hours in line, but the payoff was worth it. Thank you, Franklins!”

“I haven't been able to eat gluten or dairy for the past 13 years, and this is the best dining experience I've had in that time.I'm used to going to birthday or other special occasion dinners and leaving the restaurant feeling hungry, embarrassed, or sick--or some combination of all three. This was the first time I had an array of options, all of them delicious, with things I had never tried before. The Halva dessert blew me away, and I had several of my friends without food restrictions try it, and they all thought it was delicious.Not only were the staff knowledgeable and discreet, but I didn't feel the slightest bit ill at any point during the meal or after.Seriously, for a 14-person bachelorette dinner, they went above and beyond to make sure I was safe and satisfied without calling undue attention or singling me out in an embarrassing way. Other restaurants, please take note.”

I tad the tuna tiradito and am still thinking about the charred allium sauce it was served with. The swordfish tacos were a revelation, the batter was similar to a light and crispy tempura. The lime semifreddo was a creative take on a key lime pie, and the mango tamarind gelato was real treat. I sat at the bar by myself, so I got to chat with the staff throughout my meal. They were attentive and clearly passionate about their work, and most importantly, I could tell from the way they interacted with one another that Este fosters a thoughtful and supportive culture. They were so helpful and gracious with each other, acting as a real team. I was so impressed overall, and I can’t wait for my next visit!”

“Perfectly prepared Seafood, comfortable but elegant ambiance, and a great location. A nice high end but low-key spot right near the iconic Austin music spot, Antone’s.The kind crab was perfectly cooked. The braised greens had the subtlest kiss of Serrano pepper. It is seafood with a whisper of the south. The chef is James Beard award winning MASHAMA BAILEY​ of Savanah, so that makes a lot of sense.The vibe was relaxed but high-end.They bill this as a southern spot. I think it is more a seafood place with a whisper of the South (not to be confused with “Texan cuisine” a cousin but something entirely its own thing.)The restroom is hard to find - it is in the hotel lobby but they do not have good signage. It is buried in the back of a second elevator bank area. They have a neon sign in a different spot announcing that it is NOT the restroom - but nothing of its equal to show you where you should go / where it is.They set up shop diagonally across from Eddie V’s (seafood and chop house) which has been there for decades.Vegetarian options: This was the one area of real opportunity: there were very few options for a vegetarian / vegansDietary restrictions: Greedy for keto and gluten allergy folks!Parking: No garage. No street parking $15 for first 3 hours of valet.Kid-friendliness: Not a kid spot.Wheelchair accessibility: Very wheelchair accessible throughout”

“4/1/24We dined at around 7:30 P.M., and we enjoyed some very interesting food!Our waiter was very nice and informative.We got a bit intrigued by the salmon egg mayonnaise appetizer, so we ordered it. Although it was 'interesting' to see and try...we had no idea that it was prepared with salmon eggs on top of the devil egged concoction. The burst of salmon egg with the somewhat boiled egg...was not a favorable appetizer. We would NEVER suggest it. 1/10 (the one rating comes from the good mayo)The fish meal on the menu was REALLY GOOD! The buttery sauce that is generously given on the plate the pan-seared fish was placed on top of really made this meal exceptional. The preparation of it was great. I wish there were more food on the plate, though (or that a good bread accompanied it). 10/10 RATING!My dinner friend ordered the pork chops with the cabbage slice. I would rate that pretty low, though. The cabbage slice was grilled, and some of it was grilled too much to enjoy.You MUST TRY THE BEET SALAD!!!! IT IS SOOOO DELICIOUS!!! 10/10 RATING!!The cheese board for a dessert was great, too... The cheese selected and the jelly was delectable.The tea that is used tastes really good.The ART WORK in the restaurant is pretty and joyful to see! Our waiter allowed us to look at the book that was prepared on each artist that has art exhibited in the restaurant. You would enjoy reading about them IF you have the time.”

Our party of 6 including 4 year old toddlers also sampled burgers, the shaved beef sandwich and the tacos and everything came out quick, fresh and delicious. We saved the best for last with the raspberry pound cake. I'm a true Southern girl and I normally don't try pound cake unless it's made from my kitchen. But this one was worth it ... They didn't cut corners with Sara Lee. Lol.I'd definitely give this place another go when I return to Austin.

“I’ve been sitting on this review for a while. I’m definitely not one to tarnish any 5 star ratings!! My experience was mixed. In part by the fact that I’ve spent countless moments at midnight trying to get reservations with no luck. When I finally snagged my first res, I was shocked to be sitting next to a guy that had been multiple times (even in the past week). Most of the others also had the good fortune to be “frequent patrons”. There was one other person who said she’d been trying to grab a reservation for a while. TBH, really didn’t sit right with me.As we all know, these reviews are opinion based only. I can only give my honest assessment of my experience.The vibe seemed catered to a younger crowd for sure. I definitely felt out of place. The “F” word was used quite liberally by the staff. No big deal, just kind of off pudding when you’re paying so much. Again, I realize this may not be a popular opinion. Unfortunately we also got on the topic of church camp and “those types” which stung quite a bit since I have a strong faith base. Not really the fault of the staff but she was very much in agreement to the conversation. I am not suggesting that the chef participated in any of these convos because he didn’t.Yes, the food and drinks were absolutely delicious. I got the extra cocktail menu where we get a fun drink paired with some of the courses and also participated in the extra course which was way too fishy and slimy for me. All in all, my bill was slightly over $400. Since I just didn’t have the best experience, needless to say, it was too expensive for me.My biggest suggestion would be to not go solo.Parking: Very difficult to find.”

“Franklins be damned, La Barbecue be damned, Terry Blacks be damned, hell, any social-media-crazed barbecue spots be damned; this is as real-deal quality Texas BBQ as you'll EVER get. All without the lines (probably a temporary thing), the exorbitant cost over quality, and with some of the most authentic and friendly Texans working there you'll ever meet (love you, Brad).At the current time of writing Jim's has 48 reviews with a perfect 5.0 stars, and folks, this ain't for no reason. I've been coming here for over a year now at their other location and I really can't say enough good things about how this is my (and literally anyone I've brought here's) favorite BBQ place in the world; let alone Texas. Their moist brisket practically separates from just starring at it the wrong way it's that tender, and their dual sauces that are served with each plate satisfy pallets that prefer both the thicker/sweeter or thinner/vinegar-based styles. The bark is also very pronounced and loaded with flavor, so this place is basically a brisket lover's best dream come true. I could on about their sides and how amazing they also are, but if you're not already coming here for this review on their brisket then you don't deserve their world-class sides.Do yourself a favor and come here sooner rather than later, you won't regret it.”

Service was good. Food is above average. We really like the duck taco which is better than the duck we tasted in some Chinese restaurants. The only thing that we can "complain" is the server just automatically gave us the more expensive option of the beans which is supposed to come with the plate. We didn't need to have the refry beans for $2 more! This was not even explained to us until we receive the final bill. And there is additional 3% surcharge for " health benefit" of the employees.”

We were lucky enough to secure reservations last minute and upon our arrival were treated as if we quite possibly owned a share of the restaurant ( We do not ) the lovely hostess was kind enough to provide the women of our party ( One being the one celebrating her Birthday ) each with a single long stem red rose to celebrate the occasion. In a brief amount of time we were seated at a phenomenal area of the restaurant only to find a card on the table with a hand written Happy Birthday proclamation. The service was prompt and personable which was greatly appreciated & the staff worked in a well orchestrated manner to suit our every need. It was such a wonderful experience to have the manager Mary come over to personally check on us and provide a sincere and thoughtful conversation to our party. That in and of itself made this worth the visit but, as this is a restaurant the topic of this review should be the food of which every single item that was ordered from the filets to the lobster tails and even the special that night of halibut were exquisite. The items were well seasoned , flavorful and prepared to the requested parameters. I can not say enough good about how appetizing it all was. This place is stellar and sets an exemplary standard that I wish other " Fine dining " establishments could live up to. This place will now rank as one of my top referrals for anyone who will listen ! Once again .... Thank You Mary & staff for the undeniably amazing experience !!!!!”

I can remember the time I was here it was definitely not in the relationship I am in now, who you are with who sees you, who loves you is everything the person that I'm with all the food I get to try is beautiful and wonderful and exceptional Simply because of the person that I get to call my partner and my love.This was our first time together at Olamaie and the food was exceptional oysters Rockefeller, the really delicious hush puppies our cocktails we're sensational, the Jefferson rice was shrimp was so good the texture is amazing and of course the biscuits are perfect. We really really loved it and can't wait to come back and enjoy it again thank you to the staff and the kitchen who put together a brilliant dinner for us thank you.Who you are with really does make all the difference in the world, you see the world brighter, more colorful more beautiful.

2600 E Cesar Chavez St, Austin

“This is an EXPERIENCE and your tastebuds will WEEP. A spot you cannot pass up. Money is well worth the night you will have here.Two things to start off with:1) Pay the extra for the add-ons and the booze accompaniments if you can stomach it. I am a tiny woman so I did not add in the alcohol but added a wine for my meal and added one "add-on" to a dish. If you are paying a large amount of money for food - might as well go all the way. It's times like these I curse myself for having a small stomach.2) Book in advance and when you book our chefs said if you book the LAST seating they are sometimes able to give extra bites for an additional cost (again - if you have a big appetite this is a no brainer!)Let's start off with the location. Our Uber dropped us off and the driver along with myself and my husband had no idea where to go LOL. Who would've thought it'd be in a home! Super cute and once inside it is a really cool dining experience. You approach the hostess who asks if you'd like to add-on to your sushi pieces - we added black truffle to one and then presented us with a complimentary cocktail a grapefruit and rosemary spritz which was actually delicious which was surprising to me as I am not a grapefruit girl! She then had us wait in the lounge area for the rest of our dining group!Once inside the room I would compare it to a Michelin dining experience as you are treated with the utmost respect, the restaurant is spotless and these sushi chefs know what they are doing. The care put into their work is mesmerizing. It is actually BETTER than Michelin dining because it's laid back and full of laughs and conversation. It was a two hour meal of fun! We got to know the chefs and the other diners. The time flew by!This meal was 17 courses and we found that there were only 2 we weren't HUGE on. Majority of the bites were a 90% wow and there were I think 5 that were 100% popping eyes out of sockets WOWZA's. The fish are shipped in from parts of Japan, Indonesia and New Zealand to name a few. Everything was so fresh and vivid. I just find omakase to be an out of body experience. The different textures, flavours and the knowledge these chefs have to plate items together to perfect flavour combinations is mind blowing.I won't describe EVERY bite because this review is already quite lengthy - HOWEVER; I would love to write about the showstoppers. The Shima Aji (striped jack), the Chu toro (medium fatty tuna), the Japanese Mackerel, the OTORO (Fatty tuna), the A5 wagyu and the unagi which was the last bite with bone marrow and I am sorry - it was one of the best things I had ever tasted. Our chef said it is kind of a cheat code because it's fat on fat but oh my days was it ever HEAVEN ON EARTH. Not only were these bites OUT OF THIS WORLD but this wasn't the end - there was a green tea with ginger sauce and it was the best tea I had ever had. Even more promising was the fact my husband, who HATES tea (weirdo, I know) said the tea was outstanding. Please tell us how to make this tea or where to buy it! It is life changing! It was a great palate cleanser and great digestive aid after all of those bites. Lastly, we were surprised with a dessert. I have never gotten a dessert in my two other omakase experiences and it was honestly just unlike any dessert I had ever taken. This was a Michelin dessert through and through. It was a black sesame seed ice cream with meringue and a lemon curd and it had some seeds or something. I don't even know. I think I went deaf when they were explaining the items to me because I just was in my own Lala land of mouth pleasure!The only bites we didn't care for were the everything bagel bite - this felt too Americanized for us and totally overtook the fish flavour at the end. We also felt the sea bream was a bit bland. But 2 dishes out of 17 with a dessert and phenomenal tea are not going to stop us from coming back again! Please treat yourself. It is something every sushi fan MUST try.”

“Good restaurant on a prime scenic location in Austin! The ambiance definitely makes up a big portion of this rating and the experience. The interior design is very well done and I was impressed from the moment I walked in to the moment I got to my seat. The view is stunning and the barriers are clear glass. Don't forget your sunglasses or you might have to face away from the view! At night they pull these clear garage door-like things down. I was surprised to see how full the establishment was for a Wednesday night. It must be super crowded on weekends. No wonder they have a large waiting area. The food was good. We were recommended the hummus with naan - the hummus is made in house and very smooth, and the naan is crispy on the edges and soft on the inside. They kindly granted our request when we asked for more naan. From the time we ordered, our entrees took about 45 minutes to arrive. I definitely appreciated how a lot of the menu items give the option of a small or large portion, with the small portion typically being 4oz of meat and the large 8oz. The small portion is still sizeable but may not fill you up. We got the pepper steak risotto, truffle risotto with steak, and the sea bass. The truffle was too prominent but the sea bass was good. The highlight for me was the blackberry cobbler. The cobbler was hot and crisp and it was filled with blackberries. Unfortunately, service was a miss for the most part. When we showed up, there was no one manning the front of house, so a line formed. We had a reservation, but weren't seated immediately and were told to sit in the waiting area (fortunately it only took a few minutes to be seated). However I went to use the restroom and they seated my friend that I came with and told her that they would catch me when I came out of the restroom. They didn't. Additionally the waitress for our table was good but there were others who came by in between - one who said he would return with water and never did, and another one cleared all our utensils after our appetizer (we had to ask for utensils from our main waitress again). This place is great for a range of occasions, from a casual outing where you still want to impress, to a date, to a girls' night out. I saw some people dressed pretty casually, as well as people who dressed up. Overall I'm glad Quince took this location by the water next to Mozart's! It is a much more upscale alternative to Hula Hut next door and the perfect establishment for this location.”

“We were slow in giving Comedor a try. We've thought about dining here a few times over the last few years, but never did. We regret that now as after trying this wonderful restaurant for the first time just a couple of weeks ago it has become one of our favorites in Austin.Food (5 of 5) -- every thing we have tried on the menu has been excellent and unique. Here are some of our favorites:• Memela -- brand new this week and not yet on the menu. The most beautiful dish, which is surprisingly as delicious as it is beautiful. The spread of refried beans (?) with bone marrow, chorizo made with ribeye and the colorful fresh vegetables were so good, that we immediately just ordered another one.• Steak tartare -- not currently on the menu, but sometimes still available as a special. The one time we had it as a special, it was phenomenal with exceptionally well balanced yet complex flavors with just the right sprinkling of spices and caviar• Sunchoke -- we've had this a few times prepared in a couple of different ways; all of which were excellent. Our favorite was the Sunchoke, Masa Tempura, Salsa Pasilla Fermentada, Grilled Lemon Aioli.• Ensalada -- unique blend of flavors of clearly very fresh ingredients. The quest Chiapas buttermilk on this salad is a wonderful paring with the rest of the flavors of this salad including the pork belly.Service (5) -- hands down the best service we have had in Austin and some of the best service we have had anywhere. Attentive, but not overly so and the staff work so well together as a team.Ambiance (5) -- the outdoor patio is beautiful and so well done with the interior courtyard providing ample protection from wind and late afternoon or evening sun.

“In Austin, was feeling some fancy cocktails and snacks one night. Decided to come to the RR and definitely happy we did. No reservation meant we had to sit in the upstairs bar, where the cocktail list is a bit smaller (though still significant). There was a bachelorette party when we went and it was very Texy, but overall the spot was dark, classy, diverse, with foreign films being silently screened on the wall. I love the bar's aesthetic--hip and classy but casual--and the extensive cocktail list includes a number of historical drinks through the ages as well as house creations. I opted for the Roosevelt Room Old Fashioned, which, with its branded ice cube, was a beautiful presentation. One of my companions opted for a dirty vodka martini; the other for the Cigar Box, which wins pretty much all cocktail presentation forevermore. All drinks were incredibly tasty, and the service was spectacular as well. Because we came for snacks, too, we...well, we went a little crazy. The sumac and pepper popcorn was my favorite. Perfectly popped with enough flavor to keep me coming back for more. I love popcorn. We also ordered the sweet & spicy nuts, which were, unsurprisingly, delicious. The seasonal pickle plate was another winner for me. If you pickle it, I will eat it. More traditional pickled veg (think sweet peppers, beets, etc) plated up next to pickled strawberries and blackberries--genius. Loved this as well. We also ordered the potato pancakes, which were good, but not my favorite dish here. Lastly, we got the salade verte, which I really enjoyed--but a word to the wise: the shallot in this sucker is going to make your breath horrible. All in all, this was a great spot to experience. If I lived in Austin, I don't think I would come by often, but it's definitely a great locale for when you're feeling fancy drinks in a fun, casually classy environment.”

“It's a very small place and very popular so be ready to wait. The pho was good but a little bland. The Bánh mì was very tasty and seasoned well and the bread was fresh and crunchy. Their spring rolls were very good with a great flavor.”

“After I tried Pho at Sip Pho, I seriously do not want to go anywhere else to have my bowl of Pho anymore because Pho here is absolutely phenomenal, extremely delicious and flavorful, I am not even kidding. I ordered the rare steak pho and the meat is thick but so tender and moist. My friend ordered short rib Pho and the bowl is gigantic!? He cannot even finished it… I know for sure that I will have to come back here again and many more times? Sip Pho is a MUST TRY you all! Highly recommend!”
